I’m very alert to the priorities Christian executives use coaching for. The daily give and take of leadership is never static. Response is critical. Sometimes it determines the direction the division, company or organization will take moving forward. Other times it affects only one person or small number of people. Sometimes … it’s all about us personally.
Christian executives and leaders establish clear goals at the beginning of our coaching relationship. Often this involves a mix of both personal and business or ministry priorities.This forms the backdrop for every coaching meeting we have together.
Here is a sampling of what a few more recent leaders said they wanted to work on when they first engaged my coaching services. You may share their sentiments.
